XDM-40 (4.5 in) with a Blade-Tech IWB holster. There's no real model to it except that it's the IWB Model and it's IDPA (I think that's what it said) approved. Ran me about $60-65 for the holster, not the most comfortable IWB, but it works great.

In the colder months I frequently carry either a Browning Hi-Power or SA XDm45 (4.5").

But I go with a PF9 when the layers come off.

I wouldn't call it "full-size" but I've been carrying my Kahr CW45 and liking it. It is certainly not a double-stack XDM, but there is never a time I don't know that I have it on.

Something very comforting about a grip that extends below my pinkie!

I carry a full size 1911, carry it all of the time, and carry it comfortably; All you need is good leather and a good belt, and to be a little flexible on your wardrobe.

i do depending on what im doing. day to day going to the store shopping etc i carry my xdm compact simple because getting in and out of the truck or car the full length slide and grip of my 4.5 is a little pinchy and uncomfy. the compact just slightly shorter barrel is just enough to carry comfy. same with the grip.

unfortunately i dont have a good iwb holster for my xdm's so ive been using the one they came with.
